Thanks. What I'm trying to understand is what a GPS device does, by design, that allows it to do this using less power.

Why does GPS drain power faster from a smartphone faster than it does from a dedicated device? Can you recommend a specific model that does mapping for navigation and uploads a location to a server so that it can be tracked?

@vclaw: real time, so that if we needed to be rescued, there'd be an online beacon to look for.

@MarkMayo: Are you aware of comparable data for an aerodynamic cargo box, which is what I'm looking at? Bikes must have a terrible effect on the resistance, but maybe a wing shaped box isn't so bad?

comment What's a good way to generate solar electricity while driving?
@Rory: I guess my assumption is that taking it from the car battery ultimately wastes gas. Is that not so? But also, even if not, the fan on my inverter is quite loud (annoying) and gets really hot, ultimately causing us to use more A/C, so I'd rather mount a solar device on the roof or something and run a cable into the cabin, to avoid this problem.

This looks really promising. I'll check this out in detail and report back. Thanks!

@Gilles: Exactly; I'm not asking how solar panels work, I'm trying to get one to solve my traveling problem.
